ALL THINGS GREAT ABOUT EASTMAN !!!
PROGRAMS BEYOND THE TRADITIONAL CLASSROOM
Garden and Nature Ranger
Our students are excited about the new garden. We have the Garden Ranger Program on site that will involve every child in a six-week lesson that will involve gardening, STEM science and art! Every child at Eastman will participate in active learning through the garden. The ultimate goal is to understand the importance of sustainable living and the impact skills earned will contribute to the sustainable environment. Learn more at
We are in the partnership with Playworks, an organization that supports active play at recess and lunch. We want recess and lunch to be a fun and exciting experience for our students, so we are enthusiastic about our partnership with this agency to promote leadership,friendships, cooperation and social skills through play!

We are scheduling our monthly Enrichment Assemblies for our children. The latest “ A Drop In The Bucket”, was a big hit with students! Through a hands-on activity, students learned about how our water moves in aqueducts to promote water conservation! Monthly program assemblies include Conservation Awareness, Seeds To Garden, Nutrition, Safety, Community Awareness and more.
We are in our fifth year of Dancing in the Classrooms for our fifth graders. It is a wonderfully unique program. Every year our fifth graders learn ballroom dancing from an experienced dancer. The culmination is a competition with students from all over the district. We have won the Gold Medal four of those years!
This year we are partnered with the Music Center and are offering Performing Arts. We are also in the process and a partnership with Inner City Arts.
3rd through 5th grade students have the opportunity to be in our school orchestra. Look at Arts program page to find out more.
